management is a complex topic that is handled in different ways around the
world based on available local resources, technologies, and intensity of
community initiatives. So, Waste to Energy WTE is a renewable energy
technology that has seen a major rise in the last decade as Myanmar has been
looking for methods for handling its population boom and related rapid
increase in waste generation rates. The conventional fuels required for
production of electricity is decreasing day by day and it is very important
to find out alternative sources which can be used as the fuel for the
production of electricity especially for developing countries like Myanmar.
In this paper, feasibility study of waste to energy WTE power conversion
plant is presented to fulfil the main aim of zero waste city implementation,
Mandalay, Myanmar. With the application of WTE plants, the electricity
requirement can be fulfilled and also helpful for environmental condition.
For case study, Mandalay Industrial Zone is selected since it has low
reliability of power supply form national grid and is suitable for
construction of a WTE power plant. The simulation for WTE power plant with a
peak load of 30 MW is described using HOMER software. Average energy
consumption of the industrial zone is estimated approximately 283 MWh day and
WTE has consumed almost 118,935 tonne per year of municipal solid waste MSW .
The proposed system is designed to provide approximately 100 of energy from
the municipal solid waste for the proposed area.
